conservative positions. both governor romney and congressman ryan talked about the need to not raise taxes. they talked about the need to keep our defenses strong. they both talked about reducing spending. we're heading for a debt crisis. they both talked about the pro-life, recognizing the sanctity of human life and the family institution. on the four key principles that define the republican party, the defense, lower taxes, traditional values, and these guys are rock solid. americans understand this is what makes our country great. that is what the party of ronald reagan is all about. i do not think there deviating. >> mitt romney told the iowa editorial board that he does not foresee abortion legislation coming to his desk or putting something for it. is that ok with your conservative members? >> look, i am pro-life. romney is pro-life. the vast majority of americans are pro-life. we're talking about unborn children. he was saying taxpayer dollars should not be used to take the lives of unborn child. president obama has said that our tax dollars can be used in that way. gov. romne

caller reflects an important point of view that is out there and both obama and romney need to address, which is national security is really what americans care about. they might be less concerned about the rating of a new constitution in tunisia, although that is important in the new middle east, but they are concerned if the instability gives rise to new states that allow al-qaida and philips to flourish. that is what has happened in parts of libya. they do not have central government control over all of the territory, and that is part of why you saw this terrible tragedy. on the specifics, there is an investigation under way by the fbi and the state department has launched what it calls an official accountability review board. we do not have the full picture of what actually happened, but there is no question that this is a major tragedy. it is the first time in more than two decades that the u.s. has lost an investor in a situation like this. host: susan glasser is editor in chief at "foreign policy magazine. indiana. chris. independent line. caller: jobs are going to be the most i

challenges -- and i will talk about both campaigns, i think one of the challenges the romney campaign will have is that he is not connecting. he does not connect. and what's wrong with mitt romney? he seems like a nice enough guy to me. he was my governor for a while and i thought he was pretty competent in massachusetts. one of the things he has not done in terms of connecting was it's not dislike he's not connecting with people, but the thing that's really going on is he has not been able to say why his time at bain capital would make him ready for president. that's a connection that i think people are not seeing. he can get warm and talk about roses on his mother's bedside table, like at the convention, which was moving. but until we start connecting in that way, i think he will continue to struggle. obama campaign going into the debate does not have the burden and probably should talk about what the next four years will be like. i expect that will happen during the debates. i say they don't have the burden because i'm talking tactically. the challenger does have that burden. we have a
